Each Veterans Day, Central holds a special luncheon for all employees and invites those in the military to bring in their memorabilia. This year’s Veterans Day celebration was different than in years past as we recently installed a flag pole in our front green space. We raised the flag for the first time just before our luncheon in honor of our veterans and current military members. Check out the photo gallery here!
